Learn to fly from New Zealand’s industry leaders
Eagleflight possesses the ethos, values and methods necessary to train pilots to the highest standards. These are the standards that have given us a zero accident legacy across all operations and all training.
Eagleflight, through our fully owned brand North Shore Helicopters Limited, is approved to provide abinitio and advanced training. North Shore Helicopters meets all Civil Aviation Authority standards in areas such as safety, quality of training and aircraft maintenance - clearing us to operate under Part 141 of the Civil Aviation Regulations. Our experienced ‘A’ Cat Instructors have thousands of hours experience in both civilian and military operations and flight training. They use proven practical and real-world training methods to help students learn the fundamental disciplines of helicopter piloting; this gives them the confidence to make safe and informed decisions throughout their careers.
Our training courses are delivered from our base at North Shore Airfield, Auckland where we have lecture rooms, briefing rooms and aircraft hangars. The facility also offers uncongested airspace, very close to Whenuapai and Auckland airports and close to a number of different training areas and facilities.
Our resources, facilities and location enable us to complete training in shorter time frames and at lower cost than government organisations.
